Can you critique conformation and movement from these videos?

I apologize for the poor video quality, but I was hoping someone with some knowledge could critique Kopper's movement and conformation from these videos I made. I think he's got really nice movement and is well put-together, but I don't know much. If you click the picture, you'll be taken to the video in my photobucket.

I don't know how to critique but I think he's gorgeous! Very masculine with nice coloring. His movement looks normal.

He's beautiful.

It'd be easier give a more detailed response if you were on a level with him, instead of standing--so we're seeing him at shoulder level. But he's very balanced front and rear, has a smooth, strong back, and he looks to have a very attractive and correct body type.

Thank you. I'm partial to him myself. I tried taking videos on his level and got about 10 movies of the end of his nose.

Ahh, yes. I am familiar with that phenomenon. Give someone else the camera while you stand up and they'll often keep moving like they normally do.

Thanks for your comments. I've been kicking around the idea of doing a conformation show for fun, but didn't want to get laughed at because he's not a show line dog. I know I like to watch him trot.

I can't watch photobucket videos. My dial-up is too slow and I don't have flash on my phone (I need to update the software).
